To remove embedded hair and dirt from your wool pad, rotate a dry 5 Star cleaning sponge in a circular motion on dry pad. Wipe the hair off of your 5 Star Cleaning Sponge surface with your hand occasionally. For pads with heavy crusted sweat and dirt, break up these areas with a rubber fingered curry or scrape gently with a dull edged object being careful not to cut the felt. Use a vacuum to remove excess grime and loose material. A brush or a swift slap with your hand may also be used to sweep away dirt and hair.
